These PhenoPlate microplates for high content imaging applications are collagen-coated and are available in black in a 96-well format. These microplates benefit from a film bottom made of cyclic olefin, a plastic that has glass-like optical properties, providing superior image quality and also good cell adherence. They have an ultra-low plate bottom (0.2mm) for better well access when using water immersion and high NA objectives, and a new design, low profile polystyrene lid for reduced evaporation. Case of 160, 8 bags of 20.
Extracellular matrix proteins such as collagen provide an attachment framework for the adhesion and growth of certain cell types in vivo, and can also be used for cell attachment to plate surfaces in vitro. Cellular fibronectin membrane proteins mediate the attachment of cells to collagen substrates. Collagen is the most abundant protein in mammals that is found throughout the body and is a major component of the extracellular matrix (ECM). The most frequently used types of collagen for coating are collagen I and IV. Collagen type I is suitable for endothelial and epithelial cells, muscle cells and hepatocytes. Collagen type IV is the major constituent of basement membranes and offers more physiologically relevant conditions to cells as well as improving the adherence of specific cell types i.e. PC-12 (rat adrenal pheochromocytoma cell line). Our catalog plates are coated with rat tail collagen Type I.
